    En las sociedades desarrolladas actuales, no sólo es deseable que una nación obtenga un adecuado nivel de producción y que una buena parte de ésta se materialice en renta disponible, sino que también es importante que la renta se distribuya de forma justa y equilibrada. En ese sentido es importante analizar la distribución de la renta y su concentración según cuatro criterios fundamentales: personal, territorial, funcional y sectorial. No obstante la diversidad de enfoques, son los dos primeros los que mayor atención han recibido por parte de los analistas dedicados al análisis de la desigualdad de la renta. Pero la desigualdad no es el único tema relacionado con la distribución de la renta, sino que cada vez cobran más importancia aspectos relacionados con la polarización, la pobreza o el crecimiento económico. El objetivo de este trabajo es aportar una panorámica del estado actual de los estudios sobre distribución de la renta, fundamentalmente desde los enfoques personal y espacial. Currently, in developed societies, it is not only desirable to obtain an appropriate national production level and available income, but rather it is also important a fair distribution among population. In that sense it is important to analyze the distribution of the income and its concentration according to four approaches: personal, territorial, functional and sectorial. Nevertheless the diversity of focuses, mainly first two have received attention from analysts dedicated to the analysis of the income inequality. But inequality is not the only topic related with the distribution of the income. Other topics as polarization, poverty or mobility of incomes are becoming important. The objective of this work is to give a general seeing about the current state of the studies about distribution of the income, fundamentally from the focuses personal and territorial. .Classification-JEL:D30;D3;D32;I38;
